How to Watch K-Movies w/ English Subtitles (NUEL)

Hello everyone and welcome back to another post by EonTalk! Today, I’ve got something special. One of the most common questions I’ve received in the past 4 years I’ve been doing EonTalk is “How do I watch Korean movies online?” “Where can I watch more K-movies?” And this is a valid question, as I also find it very difficult to find the K-films that I’m craving to consume. However, the answer is far from simple.

Of course, it’d be awesome if there was a single, unified place where we can go to watch all the K-movies our hearts desired. But that’s impossible. Issues such as copyright, subscriptions, ads, scams, and undesired pop-ups makes the movie-searching, movie-watching experience dreadful.

What makes the problem worse, is that each country/region has different laws and copyrights, and so what you may be able to watch in the US, may not be available in Korea. A Korean film that’s on the Philippines Netflix, may not be available in India. And even if you are able to find the exact film you are looking for upon hours of search, finding the English subtitles for that exact movie is another gruesome task.

And thus, in this video, I’ll show you how to watch Korean movies in 4 easy ways. Simply remember “NUEL,” or N.U.E.L.

N – Netflix

First, “N.” N stands for Netflix. Netflix is one of, if not, the biggest streaming platform in the world. Ranging from movies to TV shows, original series to reality shows, Netflix has boundless content to choose from. And of course, the streaming service has K-movies, as well as K-dramas. Simply subscribe to Netflix at, and gain access to thousands of content.

U – Unogs

Second, “U” for Unogs. Unogs stands for “Unofficial Netfilx Online Global Search,” and what it is, is a database of content available on Netflix of various locations around the globe. As mentioned before, although Netflix has various content to choose from, it’s limited in quantity due to geographical restrictions. A movie available in one location, may not be in another. But with Unogs, you’re able to check exactly which country or region’s Netflix server has the movie you’re looking for.

Let me give you an example: Let’s say you’re trying to watch <The Outlaws>, one of the best crime action comedies out of Korean cinema. Simply go to, search for <The Outlaws>, and boom. You’re able to see that the movie is available on the Hong Kong and Japanese Netflix with English subtitles. And even better, you’re also able to see the languages of the supported subtitles.

E- Express VPN

Next, “E” for Express VPN. Now, you’re able to see which locations has the movies you’re looking for on Netflix. That’s great and all, but what if you don’t live in the listed places that the film is available, or if English subtitles aren’t available? That’s where ExpressVPN comes in.

ExpressVPN has been an amazing partner of EonTalk, and I highly recommend using it to gain access to essentially endless amount of content. By using ExpressVPN, you’re able to bypass geo-restrictions, meaning you can be from anywhere around the world, and access servers from all parts of the globe. All you need to do is go to ExpressVPN following this link, sign up using a specially discounted price, turn the VPN on, and choose the location you would like to access. And there you are. Your virtual self is in the location you have selected.

So using the example of <The Outlaws>, let’s say you don’t live in Hong Kong or Japan. Simply turn on ExpressVPN, set your location to one of the two places, preferably Hong Kong since it has English subtitles, and there you have it. You are now accessing the Hong Kong Netflix server, and now have access to <The Outlaws>.

But be sure to use my link,, as this link will give you specially discounted prices, such as 49% off an annual plan, PLUS 3 extra months for free. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee, which means you can cancel anytime within the first 30 days if you aren’t satisfied.

L – Language Reactor

Okay, and finally, “L” for Language Reactor. What if you’ve tried all of the aforementioned recommendations, but you’re still unable to find the film you’re looking for with English subtitles. Let’s take for example, one of my personal favorite K-movies of all time, <New World>.

<New World> is a movie that I recommend everyone watching, especially if you’re into the crime, noir, thriller genre. However, there’s just one problem. As you can see when you search on Unogs, the film is only available in Korea, with Korean subtitles. This means even if you use Netflix, Unogs, and ExpressVPN, you still aren’t able to watch the film to the max because there are no English subtitles. And this is where Language Reactor, my last recommended step, comes to play.

Language Reactor is a Chrome extension for the Chrome browser. Go to, or search for “language reactor” on the Chrome Web Store. Then, go to Netflix and a pop-up will appear asking you to choose your native language. Choose “English” if you would like to see your subtitles in English, and choose the film of your choice on the now-infinite library of Netflix.

Now, in order to turn on English subtitles, click the settings icon on the upper-right-hand corner, and under “Translation language,” choose “English.” Next, under “Translation language,” you’ll be able to find “Show machine translation.” At first, you’ll have to Sign in. Sign in with Google, and go back to the settings page of Language Reactor. Now, toggle on the “Show machine translation,” and there you have it. You’re able to watch < New World> with English subtitles.
*Please note, Machine Translations feature has been recently changed to a subscription model for Netflix. There is a 14-day free trial for eligible users, so try it out first before paying!

You can also turn on and off the transliterations if this gets in the way, but I recommend keeping it on if you’d also like to learn Korean while consuming Korean content. Now, keep in mind that the translation is done automatically by AI, and thus, the translation may not be 100% correct. But this is BY FAR better than not having ANY English subtitles.

Also, another thing to note is that this is only available for Google Chrome at the moment, and thus, you must use Chrome to open Netflix, meaning you can’t use this option on your mobile or tablet devices.
